We know you love our in-store style and shape advisors as much as we do, so we’ve decided to share their style and shape advice on the blog. The Evans store advisors are always on hand to offer great style advice, free fitting and measuring services and tailored shape advice, so to make sure all our customers benefit from their fantastic knowledge and advice we decided to start ‘Evans Store Style Spotlight’.
This week we focus on a team member from the Evans Bromley store, Lizzie, during the run up to the Jubilee celebrations and our great Red, White and Blue 15% instore and online offer. See what Lizzie has to say about shop by shape, bra fittings and who would be her King if she were Queen!
Name: Queen Elizabeth Spencer (Lizzie)
Store: Bromley Highstreet
Role: Advanced Sales Advisor & store bra specialist
How would you describe your style?
I dress for comfort and to look good, and I like to keep up with Evans’ lastest fashion. I aim for a classic look with a nod to modern trends.
What body shape are you and how do you dress for your shape?
I’m busty so I choose garments that will flatter my bust and show off my shapely legs! I enjoy trying new things and following fashion that’s suited to my age.
Who are your style icons? Why?
I think Gemma from TOWIE is a great advocate for curvy ladies as she always embraces her curves and wears the lastest looks, I also think Arlene Phillips has a great style as she always dresses fashionably but suitably for her age.
Where do you find your style inspiration?
Fashion features on morning TV, i.e This Morning & Lorraine, I also like to see what the Loose Women ladies wear as they all have very unique styles.
Are you more of a trip to the high street or a shop online at home girl?
Both!! I love the experience of going shopping and trying items on but you can always rely on the internet to have a little bit more choice.
Do you follow any magazines or blogs?
I enjoy Look magazine and Evans blog so I can keep upto date with the lastest the brand has to offer.
If you could give one piece of style advice to women, what would it be?
Have a bra fitting! The right bra will add extra definition and make you feel great.
What is your favourite fashion piece?
My collection of dresses for Evans. I’ve got one to suit every occasion and they all fit so well!
What is your must have item from Evans this season?
My jubilee tshirt - It’s going to see me right through the Jubilee celebrations and the Olympics!
What is your role at Evans?
I’m an advanced level sales advisor & bra fit specialist of the store - Come & see me for a fit & measure any time!
What do you like about working at Evans?
I enjoy the customer contact and being able to help ladies choose their ideal outfit to suit their body shape and make them feel amazing.
What would be your 1st act as Queen?
Make it compulsory for all women to visit Queen Lizzie for a bra fit!
If you were Queen, who would be your king and why?
Colin Firth - He’s gorgeous & a total gent.
If you were invited to the Queens Jubilee celebrations, what would you wear?
My Evans V-neck spotty prom dress to fit and flatter my shape. I add a fascinator and black cork wedges to match.

Escape the dreary UK weather and start to plan and organise your summer holiday wardrobe for those long balmy summer nights and fun, active sunshine filled days. Here’s our first guide to what to include in your holiday wardrobe - Linen Mix Trousers.
The perfect items to take on holiday need to meet a whole checklist of requirements. They need to travel well, fit well, be comfortable, the fabric should be breathable and natural and, most importantly, should make you look and feel your best. We design all our holiday essentials with these things in mind, and a great place to start your holiday shopping and packing is with a pair of Evans Linen Mix Trousers.
Available in white, black, brown, navy and stone there’s a colour to suit all tastes and outfits, and currently the linen mix trousers are on offer meaning you can get 2 colours for just £35.
These slightly wide leg linen mix trousers will look fantastic with flipflops and a casual jewel coloured t-shirt or vest, or dressed up for a night of cocktails and fun with pretty heeled sandals and a detailed or printed blouse or top.
What would you wear your linen mix trousers with on holiday?
